    Beautiful, Healthy Tree!

    Posted by Marsel on 03/16/22

    It was a long wait, because I ordered in summer and Linden Trees aren't in season till winter/spring. But the tree just arrived a couple of days ago, and it was hardy, healthy and strong looking with a couple of tiny buds on it already. It was very well packaged and had no signs of damage. I planted it the same day into a large pot with lots of water, compost and good soil. A couple of days later it still looks great and happy! Can't wait to watch this beauty grow! It's so hard to find linden trees online, but I wanted one so bad because tea from the flowers and leaves of Linden Tree are out of this world! My mother often talks about linden trees where she grew up smelled of sweet honey when you walked by them in bloom. Magical, can't wait!

    Little Leaf Linden tree

    I cannot praise the growers and packers at the Tree Store enough! The long awaited tree arrived by mail this week. It was boxed like a long stemmed rose. Secured inside and perfectly moist, just coming into leaf. It is beautiful. I am glad to have found a tree store that takes such excellent care of the trees they grow and sell. Thank you!

    Littleleaf Linden Tree delivery

    Posted by James Webb on 06/30/21

    The trees were delivered on one of the hottest days of the summer thus far. The box was hot, and I was nervous about the contents; but the trees were well-packaged and were showing buds at the end of June. Soaked them in water overnight and planted. All is well. Thank you.
